Here is video of the kids singing in church on Christmas Eve. Dylan and Maci and cousin Kya are in the first song singing "Go Tell It On The Mountain" Dylan knew all the words, which was not the case for most of the kids. As for Maci, we weren't sure if she was going to sing the right song. All week she was telling us no matter what everyone else sang she was going to sing another song about Mary and Joseph. It was different every time she made it up, but we were really glad she got with the program. Connor is singing "A Shine Medley" in the second video. He is right between twin brothers who are also in his class at school. He has better rhythm than his parents that's for sure. They did a great job. Another picture of the cuties, (this one didn't make the Christmas card)

This summer while we were in Kalamazoo Michigan, I was challenged to sing "the dutch song" with my grandpa. I'm not sure that everyone thought I could do it, so we videotaped it for all to see. The story behind the song is that my grandpa used to sing this to all of us grandkids when we were little. It's a very catchy song and after all these years I still remember the words. After we made this video Connor, Dylan, and Maci continually wanted to sing the dutch song. They've almost got it mastered now, so I guess we're passing it to another generation. This is such a great memory of my childhood and time at Grandpa and Grandma's house.

Well those of us Hommes' that were in town for Thanksgiving decided it would be a great year to participate in the Turkey Trot in Wash Park. The weather was going to be beautiful so we went for it. It was a 4 mile course, we participated in the run/walk event and had a great time. I'm pretty sure Dylan could have run the whole course, and Auntie Mel could have kept up with him but thankfully they stopped occasionally to wait for the rest of us. We didn't break any speed records I finished 7399 out of 7444, but we were really hungry when it came time to eat our turkey dinner. It was truly a lot of fun, and we'll probably have to do it again when the weather cooperates like this year. Sorry about the pictures, we were obviously under a tree and lots of shadows on our faces, but you get the idea. We had lots to be thankful for and hope you had the same.
